As i've said before i've ended up with stress fractures in both legs due to not taking my calcium/risidronate whilst being on high dose pred and am now religiously trying but failing to take it.
I have tried the risidronate one a week which makes me vomit and feel really ill for 2 days.
The daily risidronate which gives me horrendous stomach cramps mucus diarheoa (which i still can't spell despite having)
And have now been switched to an older drug didronel which you have to take in middle of 4 hour fast for 14 days then have calcium for 76 days which still makes me feel really really sick.
Does anyone have either any tips for dealing with these horrible side effects?
Or has anyone had the i v meds? do these have less side effects??
Or any advice at all before i go back to consultant next month as i am getting a bit desparate but know i have to take something to strenghten my bones.
